It Keeps Getting Better. (Related To The Last Post)

So, I am in the middle of more job hunting today and when I log in to the Arizona job connection website, I am notified of this. Yep, America's job link was hacked about a week ago. The full text below the jump.

The Modern Hazards Of Job Searching.

Many long time readers know that I was medically separated from active duty service last October. My family and I moved from one part of the desert southwest to another part of the desert southwest in January (story here). Hunting for work is a full time job, not made any easier by the federal hiring freeze (which I do support by the way). One has to get used to a lot of rejection, which is not easy.

This Is An Interesting Article. Controversial? Yep.

You need to read the whole thing through. For those who do not care to click through to the original article from Return of Kings, I will have the entire text below the page break. The author puts into words some things that I have been thinking about for quite awhile. While he is arguing a perspective of manhood, I have been thinking more on it from the perspective of faith, society, and our future.
It is time to cast off the wimpy, namby, pamby Christianity of today. In many respects, it has become the lukewarm water that one spews out their mouth. Something that is referred to in the Book of Revelation.

Interesting Analysis On Our Current Time. Trying To Get Caught Up.

Author Sarah Hoyt, on her blog, has this interesting analysis on what is going on right now politically and socially.

Here are some great quotes:

"Because of movies and books, and the inevitable Marxist gloss on anything created/taught in the last century, a lot of us think a revolution comes about when the pressure on the people being oppressed is so strong that they rise come against the oppressor, and assert the will of the people.
This is not jut crazy, it is fricking delusional.  Like most ideas Marx had and disseminated to gullible minds, it would have benefited a little bit from JUST a little exposure to the real world.
If this were the case, the Soviet Union would not have lasted, and Cuba and for that matter North Korea would be a thing of history.  As would be Venezuela for that matter.  And before you tell me “no, because those are populist movements” think very carefully, because otherwise I’ll send you to the corner without books to contemplate your sins.  This is precisely what the left thinks, that those governments are populist and “the will of the people” and that’s why no matter how horrible the suffering they haven’t been overturned."
